Publishers Aksys and Arc System Works have announced that French-Bread’s fighting game Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] (also known as UNICLR) will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch when it releases in early 2020. The platforms were previously leaked along with the game’s title prior to the official announcement at EVO 2019, which itself did not mention platforms. An official site for the game is now up from Arc System Works with both English and Japanese, along with being up for pre-order from Aksys for $39.99 USD.
As discussed at EVO, Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[cl-r] builds upon the gameplay established in previous iterations of the series, bringing a slew of balance changes, including new moves, as well as new playable character Londrekia.
PC is not listed as one of the platforms, but both previous entries received PC ports several months (or over a year) after they launched on consoles. Also of note is that there’s no sign of an arcade version, when every previous version was available in Japanese arcades long before any home releases.
The game will be playable at select events between now and its release, two of which being the Arc Revolution World Tour Finals in California this November and CEOTaku in Orlando later this month. No new trailer accompanies this news, but if you missed the initial reveal you can see the announcement trailer here:
